However, Cena - who became a fan of Spurs having being invited to White Hart Lane in 2008 - has predicted a narrow win for the North London outfit in BBC Sport's prediction challenge with pundit Mark Lawrenson.
Cena told BBC Sport: "Tottenham were playing the same night I had a WWE event in London, but I was able to go and see the stadium and I was lucky enough to actually walk on the pitch.
"I really loved it because it was right in the heart of the city - it reminded me of an old baseball stadium with its nostalgia and tradition.
"I got to hear about the Spurs being the working man's team, I got to meet the coach and it was beautiful to see the bright green pitch amidst all the city concrete. So I was taken aback by the passion of the sport - although I never got to see them play,"
Spurs head into the match having moved into fourth place in the table courtesy of wins over Stoke City and Brighton & Hove Albion.
